How to Make a Mongram Vinyl Tee & One Item that Means the World to Me Linky



I used my Silhouette to cut out monogrammed heat transfer vinyl.  Then I made cute baseball tees for my girls.



Here is how you can make a monogrammed tee too!


The first step is to pick your monogram lettering you want to use.  I found my on Etsy.  Insert each letter of the initial that you wish to use.  Move the letters around until you have the desired look.  Next click on: "OBJECT" and "WELD" {this will bring your lettering together without any gaps}.




Second you will load your vinyl into your Silhouette.  Load shiny/print side up! Some people will tell you to mirror or flip your wording or object, but I did not have to do this.  



The third step is to check your settings before you cut!  Make sure "standard" is checked.  Also, selected Heat Transfer Material.  I also set my blade to the #2 setting.

After you have checked your settings, the send the image to the cutter!




After the vinyl is finished cutting, place your heat transfer tape on top of the vinyl and pull off the cut item.   Use your hook insturment to pull out any negative parts of the lettering you do need.


The last step is to iron the lettering on!  I was able to just place the iron directly on the heat transfer tape and iron.  Make sure your iron is set to the highest heat setting.  I ironed for about 5 minutest to make sure the vinyl was sticking to the fabric.  If you lift the tape and some of the vinyl is still coming up, just place back down and hold the iron on a little longer!  Once you are sure the vinyl is stuck on the fabric remove the heat transfer tape.  Viola - you have a cute monogrammed baseball tee!

I am linking up with I Heart Grade 3 for this weeks Summer Link-Up!   The topic this week, "One Item that Means the World to Me"".  This was a very easy choice for me.  One of the things I hold dear to my heart is my grandmother's wedding ring.   

You see my grandmother passed away when I was younger from breast cancer.  I still remember everything about her.  I remember the way she looked, the way she smelled {always so good}, and all the fun things we did together.   She was very crafty and loved to sew and paint.  I remember this one time, when I was in first grade, we handmade dishtowels and painted them.  But not just your average kid painting, we painted the prettiest scenes on these dishtowels.  I wish I had one to show you.  I don't know why, but that is one of the crafts that we did together that has always stuck with me.

I remember getting to go shopping with my grandmother to look for craft supplies.  We would buy paints, fabrics, floral products, etc...  I just remember it being so much fun.

When I graduated from high school, one of the gifts my mom gave me was my grandmother's wedding ring.   Now, here I sit almost close to turning 40 and I still hold it dear to my heart.   I always say it is my "lucky' ring.  Whenever I need a little extra good luck or cheering up, I can put this ring on and it brings a smile to my face.


What is something that is important to you?  Be sure to link up!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
